I know what you mean, but that all depends on how one defines "best."

IMHO, the best exercise is the one you like enough to engage in on a regular and frequent basis. For those of us here, that's cycling.

It seems like such an obvious point, but I really think that is where most exercise regimes fail ... and why you can pick up just about any type of used exercise machine on the cheap.

Like you, I take all these studies with a very large grain of salt. As far as I'm concerned, whether I live longer or not isn't the point. I'm living better. Or, as a friend of mine so eloquently put it:

"You'll outlive us all ... if you don't kill yourself first!"
